I stumbled upon this article today and thought it would be good to share with you. It’s the last interview given by C.S. Lewis before he died, written by Sherwood Eliot Wirt for Decision Magazine, 1963 (http://www.cbn.com/special/Narnia/articles/ans_LewisLastInterviewA.aspx).
This is the quote by Lewis that jumped out at me.
“A great deal of what is being published by writers in the religious tradition is a scandal and is actually turning people away from the church. The liberal writers who are continually accommodating and whittling down the truth of the Gospel are responsible. I cannot understand how a man can appear in print claiming to disbelieve everything that he presupposes when he puts on the surplice. I feel it is a form of prostitution.”
He should see it now, fifty-plus years later.
Because our civilization has not yet forgotten how to preserve important things–liberals are working hard to erase them!–Lewis can still speak to us. His comments still have weight, and can still enlighten us. We can be in fellowship with him, as servants in the household of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
When the past speaks… listen.
